This packet is the PERFECT tool to increase motivation and engagement for building multiplication fluency. You can use this resource to build fluency in 3rd grade, or as a review in 4th grade!
Start by explaining the system to the students. Each day students will be given 3 minutes to take a math facts test. Once he or she has received a 100% on a test within the 3 minute time frame, he or she advances to the next test. The reward for passing each test is an ice cream sundae ingredient.
If you keep the tests and recording forms inside a plastic page protector, students can use a dry erase marker to take the test and then easily erase it for next time!
One of the best parts of using this packet to build multiplication facts fluency is that each student gets to progress at his or her own INDIVIDUAL rate.
You can choose to give these tests over several weeks and allow students to earn ingredients for a sundae party, or you can just use the addition and subtraction worksheets as extra practice. Either way, your students will have a great time practicing multiplication!
